Andy is trying to get the proverb right, and the Amazing Editors are playing some reggae music to go along with it and really underscore the stoner vibe. Come on, now, these guys are athletes. Andy's arms, at least, don't say "slacker" to me. However, the proverb leads him to a verbal faceplant. Zac also misses his first attempt. Ethan close-talks it to the monk, correctly this time, and the monk pops his eyebrows after handing over the clue like, Whoa, that dude was intense. And sweaty.
Ernie & Cindy's taxi drops them off near an asymmetrical suspension bridge that marks the Dijia Riverside Park. Do I have to mention that it's next to a river? Under the bridge, they find a guy who hands them a clue telling them to "join a dragon boat race team." It's basically Chinese crew rowing, but only one racer has to row with the crew; the other only has to beat the drum. Which: lame. Phil says if they can manage that, the boat captain will give them their next clue. All 220 or so rowers in the background raise their oars and cheer. Cindy will be doing the drumming, and after they get into matching team t-shirts and dorky pullover life jackets, they run over to the waiting boats and hop into one, quickly getting underway with the rowing and the drumming. "I feel so Asian right now," Cindy says happily in her flat Midwestern accent.
Amani gets the proverb correct, so she and Marcus are in fifth place, and he's very excited about it. Zac finishes in sixth. The bespectacled flight attendant finishes in seventh. Those matching teal shirts they've got on really show the sweat, don't they? Andy gets it correct as well, so he and Tommy are in eighth place and in search of "a crazy taxi driver." Then the twins and the showgirls arrive, and this one is being done by Liz and Lisa, respectively. Not that I can tell the twins apart yet, but one of them is going to be using the other's name a lot, here in a minute.
Out on the river, Ernie and Cindy's dragon boat makes the turn around the buoy and heads back. Jennifer and Justin arrive at the park in second, and Jennifer's doing the drumming, as Sandy will be doing for her and Jeremy. They all get prepped, and soon there are three teams out on the river, the two later arrivals meeting the returning Ernie and Cindy on their way back. Of course the latter team docks with its lead intact, and get their clue sending them to...the next Pit Stop. That seems soon.
